If you thought the Hentai Kamen was strange enough, wait until you meet this Taiwanese spin-off: Zhichen Ye. Zhichen Ye first seemed to appear in 2013 when the first Hentai Kamen movie came out. Here she is at some bizarre event where the underground fetish idol is dressed in a white mankini and black stockings, and with her signature panties over her face as she is adored by a wild horde of men that might just tear her apart any second. Okay, so her get-up is pretty peculiar, but you can't deny the mystery and bizarreness doesn't make her seem ...

People in Japan like to wear masks, especially in the flu and hayfever seasons. Does it make a woman look more mysterious, hiding half a face? Or is she spoiling her charming looks? We know of a Japanese woman whose face we have never fully seen because she is always wearing a face mask. However, what we can see is always stunning, so the mask is both frustrating and tantalizing. Apparently this is a question serious enough for academics to do research over. Folk from the University of Hokkaido and Nagoya’s Chukyo University set out to find out if wearing a mask made you ...

The Japanese zentai bodysuit fetish is gradually getting better known. Here is a great way in which the originally little-known subculture can become something new. Yuzuru Maeda is a Japanese artist living in Singapore. Despite the latter's reputation for being strait-laced, Maeda has turned to zentai to create the Zentai Art Project, a series of video and dance works that use zentai motifs. The video document a series of happenings with performers in Lycra suits, such as this one. Some are more like strange music videos. Maeda also outlines a nice history ...

Fetish Festival (Feti-Fes) was held on January 31st at a venue in Harajuku and what a serendipitous collection of fetishes it was! We loved the one we attended last year. This January we couldn't go in person but watched from afar via the festival's official social media channels, from where we have pouched these shots. Everything from rope bondage and steampunk to almost-not-there bikini idols, crotch shots, masks, blood and horror, nurses, eyepatches, facesitting, and everything in between. The festival remains one of the most accessible ways to experience the sheer range of ...

Japan, the land of the panchira (up-skirt panties shot) fetish. Well, not quite. Nonetheless, there is a robust subculture of men obsessed with panchira, so much so it crops up even in mainstream culture too a fair bit. And now there is this awesome tongue-in-cheek product: the Upskirt Umbrella. It's been created by the Million Girls Project, which sounds like a college fraternity sex contest. While people in Japan probably have to head to a store in Akihabara to get their hands on this unique umbrella, international interested parties can instead order one from Japan Trend ...

Back in the spring we blogged about the awesome Ryoujoku Stockings. There is a whole subgenre of "shame" porn in Japan, many of which revolve around settings where a woman is held captive as a "public toilet" facility. Tied up, she is treated like a public latrine for a series of men to come along and dump their loads onto and into her body. Koshu benjo -- or "public lavatory" -- is a slang Japanese word used to insult a woman. (Sometimes also called a niku benki, or meat/flesh toilet.) The women's bodies are also "decorated" in writing, especially on their legs, saying they are ...

We've seen some unusual masturbator toys in our time as sex bloggers: grenades, bricks, sea anemones, tentacle sex, and more. There are also onaholes for guys with fantasies about an "extended" clitoris. More controversially, there are even shotacon "young boy" fantasy toys. But we've never seen a futanari onahole before. (Except perhaps the Otoko no Ko? Onahole, though it did not call itself a futanari toy.) The Futanari Musume Double Hole takes the fantasy of the sexy hermaphrodite -- a cute, slim Japanese girl who just happens to have a huge cock -- and turns it into a ...

Good news! The punishment for serial voyeurism is not as harsh as you might expect! The case of the Kobe serial drain panty voyeur has captivated us all, from the unabashed earnestness of the act -- hours spent in a storm drain just to glimpse a few seconds of the holy grail of passing women's panties -- to the defense by his mother that Yasuomi Hirai it not a pervert, but just likes to hide in drains Well, it seems that such extreme panchira fetish acts don't land you in as much trouble as you might expect. The 28-year-old Hirai has now been summarily indicted and fined ...

Part of us died when the Japanese Footjob Onahole sold out. Foot fetishes are so popular in Japan the toy was one of the adult best-sellers of 2014. Such a best-seller, in fact, it sold out. Now a similar toy is here to fill the gap in the market: the aptly named Realistic Ashikoki Footjob Onahole. If you have a lust for a woman's feet rubbing you up the right way, this footjob (known in Japanese an ashikoki) toy has even more realistic toes than before and an even tighter hole. We guess the only question then remains: Do you want it tender or ...

The tale of the 28-year-old serial drain voyeur keeps on getting better. It was amazing enough that the man, arrested in June 2013 for the same crime, would again risk hiding in a drain for hours in order to look up the skirts of passing women (a fetish known as panchira in Japan). Yasuomi Hirai was arrested on November 9th after he was caught in August using his phone to film up the skirt of a woman walking over the drain grill. He had been in the drain for five hours. A tabloid reporter spoke to his mother. "My son has liked to hide in small places like drains since he was a ...

Some people don't learn their lesson. Well, Yasuomi Hirai is nothing if not consistent. We first reported on his unique "talents" back in June 2013, when he was arrested for hiding in a drain in order to look up the skirts of girls passing by over him. Two years on, and Hirai is at it again. Once again Hyogo police have arrested the panchira fetishist for hiding in a storm drain, all so he could take photos of pedestrians in Kobe. This time he was caught on August 16th after he was spotted using his phone to film up the skirt of a woman as she walked past the drain he was ...

Chara Tea may well be the strangest beverage you never drink -- because it seems to be a parody or extreme fantasy. The Chara Tea Bishojo T-bag ("beautiful young girl tea bag") is meant to be a "product born out of the pure feeling of wanting to drink the juice of a beautiful young girl". Huh? Even Tama Toys don't go this far! It's being proposed by muku corporation, a Niigata-based whose regular wares seem much more mundane. What is this "juice"? The Japanese is oshiru or otsuyu but the word usually carries only an innocent meaning related to food liquid. Of course, here it's ...

Dekopin Bijo: flicking the forehead of a hot girl. While that may not be top of the list of priorities for most people, it's a big enough "thing" in Japan for it to have its own website. There are a choice of four cuties to choose from. Which lady do you want to attack on their forehead? You can tap them on the forehead with your cursor and they will respond, visually and vocally. What is this for? And who has made it? We have no idea. All we know is that Dekopin Bijo launched on October 9th. What happens next is anyone's guess. Maybe it will inspire a whole movement ...

"Ultraman porn" is a thing in Japan. Women dressed up as Ultraman-like characters (especially the Mother of Ultraman) in tight costumes and being screwed by men and other "creatures" is not just a nostalgic fantasy, it is an outright erotic fetish in its own right. Porn label GIGA likes these pastiche superhero/superheroine porn and they seem to be responsible for the unofficial Mother of Ultra porn (there may be others around). The "Giant Heroine" (Kyodai Heroine) franchise started way back in 2008 with a film starrting Nana Saeki. The most recent was in July 2015, starring Miho ...

The web magazine Ignition had an interesting article about Daigo Igarashi, the "modern alchemist" who created the Female University Student No.10 perfume replicating the “scent of a girl”. The aroma, one of many such smell fetish items in Japan, was showcased at the Niconico Chokaigi in April. The fragrance was developed by Daigo Igarashi (also known by his handle/stage name “Hiroko Ashiyama”) who’s been busy researching the topic of “hacking the five senses.” It all started with a simple question: “Why do girls smell so nice?” which lead Mr. Igarashi to focus ...

Artist Tatsuya Yamasaki has created a knowing artwork provocatively called Hentai in which he paints a picture using his penis as a ersatz brush. We don't know if his YouTube video, published a month ago, will get taken down but here are some grabs. The video is a kind of time-lapse affair, with footage from different angles speeded up. This is not parody or plain silliness. Yamasaki, who would appear to be of Japanese descent but who is from and lives in Australia, is very serious, as his artist statement reveals. Here is the video description: Japan: whilst there is a ...

It's no secret that this blog showcases its fair share of female nipples. But what about men? Men have two nipples, don't you know! They tend to get a bad rap: some metrosexual guys in Japan even cover up their nipples with stickers. Well, if you have a hankering for male nipples, then you might want to check out this book, spotted at the recent Comiket. With photography by Minatsuki, “I love everyone! Man’s nipple” is everything you would expect from such a title. While there may be some people who want to gaze at large images of male nipples -- and ...

While we hate people in the foreign media who paint Japan as a bunch of weirdos obsessed with strange gadgets and wacky fashion, when we see something like this, we can't really argue. People actually spent a lot of money making this online promo! Rock 'n' Roll Panty is just a giant panchira (up-skirt panty shot) fantasy platform. The interactive musical website allows you to get good views of cute ladies' underwear (as we know, panchira fetish is a massive phenomenon in Japan). You "tap" (click) to the sound of the music, choosing drums or guitar or vocals, and with the ...

There's weird, and then there's weird. This fetish Japanese AV title is very much the latter. Here is "Miira Onna" -- "Mummy Girl"! This 97-minute AV stars Tsukasa Kanzaki and may well be one of the most unusual porn titles we've seen for at least a year. Kanzaki plays a girl who finds a slender mummy buried in the ground. And the embalmed beauty is still alive! Soon the mummy is found by some men, who put it to good use sucking them off and then being pleasured by massager vibrators. This AV is clearly going somewhere where people don't ...

We've blogged before about how sexy Japanese athletes and sportswomen are. The volleyball players are delightfully cute while para-athlete Maya Nakanishi allures. Female bodybuilders and wrestlers have their own fetish, and have posed for hair nude shoots and appeared in porn. Well, now we can add Tomomi Takano to this growing list. Tomomi Takano was born in 1987 and is a professional female boxer in the super bantamweight class. Of course, Tomomi is a femdom or tsundere fetishist's dream come true. She is known simply as Tomomi for her modeling ...

You've seen "Ted". Maybe you've even seen "Ted 2" (out now, though not in Japan). Prepare to see a very unlikely and very unofficial spin-off...

It's produced by fetish studio Rocket.

That should give you a taste of what to ...

Photographer and designer Kuchikaseya Moira is holding her first solo exhibition at Jimbocho Gallery until July 12th, featuring sexy self-portraits and more. Kuchikaseya Moira, whose name means "Gagsmith Moira", is known for her "nerd fetish" erotic cosplay self-portraits. She looks very nice in a swimsuit, especially wearing a mouth gag as well. And as her Tumblr account reveals, she is even more alluring in a sailor schoolgirl uniform, not to mention a gas mask (as we know, quite a thing in Japan). Nice butt too. She took part in the hit "Panchira 2015" ...
